Each episode finds a new guest from the world of comics joining Mike & Zack for an in depth conversation, and occasional guest segments from their pals around the world. Subscribe via iTunesStitcher, or a podcatcher of your choice, or via the embedded audio in the posts themselves.  (Yes, some of those links below are Amazon Affiliate links that kick a little bit our way if you click through to buy them. Mea Culpa)  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and check out Mike & Zack’s personal Patreon pages.

This episode: Sarah Glidden!

Sarah Glidden is the author of How To Understand Israel in 60 Days Or Less, multiple short form comics, and her newest book Rolling Blackouts. Rolling Blackouts is about Sarah’s travels through Syria and Iraq with a group of reporters, and what she learns about those places, the people that live in them, and the fundamental philosophies and processes of journalism. We talk about her travels, her writing and editing process, journalism vs fiction, and her larger goals as a cartoonist. But First: Mike & Zack talk about adapting someone else’s essays into comics form, and the pitfalls therein. We also give some accidental branded content for our speaker systems.




PS: DON’T FORGET! We’ve finally launched our super cool Process Party Patreon! If you enjoy the pod and want to help support us in what we do, now is your chance to kick in. There’s a few reward tiers available, including the low low $1/month, but if you subscribe at the $3/month level, you will get access to an exclusive Patreon-only weekly podcast feed! That’s a whole extra podcast for less than 1$/episode of the main feed!

If the main Process Party podcast is like being in the mix chatting with cartoonists at a convention party, Process Party: Real Talk is the afterparty, when the walls come down and the real talk, advice and gossip flow freely!  Every week we ask our guests to impart a little *extra* bit of wisdom, some nuts & bolts how-to info or philosophy, and of course a heavy dose of every cartoonist’s number one concern: GETTING PAID IN COMICS! These minisodes contain exclusive content not included in the regular podcast!

Our guests come from a variety of backgrounds and places in their careers, and they all have advice for you. From how to mentally balance comics and day-jobs, to nuts and bolts advice about turning comics panels into cold hard cash. Hear exclusive tidbits about the industry, insider stuff that’s 🔥 too hot🔥 to include in the public podcast, and more.

If you really love the pod, you can sign up for the $5/month level and get everything in the lower tiers, but we also release an After Party mini-sode every Monday afternoon where Mike & Zack will review the stuff they are reading or watching at the moment! What did they think of that one movie about the people or place? What cool old/new comics are they digging on this month? This is a mainline fix of our patented jibba-jabba.

Episode 23 of Real Talk is with Jason Thompson & Jumana Al Hashal, talking about Best Practices for Kickstarter! Get in on the ground floor of the Process Party Patreon and make sure you don’t miss an episode of Real Talk! Real Talk updates every Thursday only for Patreon subscribers.


Also: Episode 04 of Process Party After Party is up!
After Party is our weekly jibba jabba podcast for 5$/month subscribers! The focus may shift slightly here and there, but the idea is basically that we’re gonna get together and talk about the books, movies or comics that we’ve both been reading. Some things we have both seen, and some things we’re recommending to each other (and you!).
EPISODE 04:   The Punisher (2017) / The Christmas Cookie Challenge / Physical Media vs The Cloud / Lovecraft Country / Making  Your Family Watch Spider-Man Movies
After Party updates every Monday only for Patreon subscribers. (But this one is available for free for one week only!)

    Hey guys! Great episode, as always. Just so you know – this episode did not automatically show up in my itunes podcast feed for some reason – after a week of hitting “refresh” every day, I checked here and found the new episode. Probably just a problem on my end (I need to ditch itunes for a better app) but I thought I’d let you know in case others have the same problem. On a similar note – before I subscribed, I used to check here for updates: and that page only lists up to episode 32 (unless I’m missing a really obvious “next” button or something). Anyway, I love the show, keep up the great work!
